Holidays For Dogs - Home Boarding Service in Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire


For home from home care for your special family member, do give us a call and 
arrange to visit to check out our business, and of course let us meet your dog.  
We like to meet the dog (and their humans) before agreeing to board as both 
parties need to be happy and comfortable with the arrangement.

We have been running our business since 2008 and are licensed by 
Herefordshire Council who inspect our home annually ensuring that 
 accommodation, security, and health and safety standards are adhered to.

We can make your holiday more enjoyable by knowing that your family pets
are well looked after in a comfortable home environment.  

We are not a franchise, and you can see with whom and where your dog will
be spending their holiday.

We have owned and loved dogs for 40 years, but sadly in 2013 we lost our two
family West Highland Terriers, Anna and her brother Murphy who were both
nearly 14 years old and are featured in lots of our photos on this website.  
We now devote our doggy time to our guests and thoroughly enjoy our business,
and pride ourselves on giving the dogs a happy, homely environment 
with all the affection and comforts that we always gave our own pets.

Dog Home BoardingCRB Checked

Proof of vaccinations is always needed, and also that the dog has been treated for fleas 
and wormed prior to their stay. You will be asked to complete our Registration form, 
and also sign authority for us to exercise your dog off of the lead if you so wish, 
to comply with our Public Liability Insurance policy.

Please also provide their bed/bedding, food, lead and collar and any items to make your dog feel at home.  We do have plenty of toys, balls and fluffy soft toys for them to play with.  
Your dog will be issued with one of our 'Holidays for Dogs' tags during their stay, 
giving details of their holiday accommodation and my mobile number

For rates please see our Terms and Conditions on the Registration form.

The full fee is payable at the start of the holiday, and is charged per day (not per night) regardless of drop off and pick up times or hours involved. Therefore for a Saturday-to-Saturday stay, this counts as an eight day booking, as both Saturdays are inclusive.
We also take dogs for daycare, if space permits.

Holidays For Dogs

We look forward to meeting you and your dogs in the future..........

“Barry & Yvonne are simply exceptional. We trust them totally & our dogs (cocker spaniels) simply love their ‘holidays’ with them - truly home from home. We cannot recommend them highly enough. ”

“Our two Cockapoos have now had at least 6 holidays with Yvonne and Barry. They have been extremely well looked after and Hill View Cottages have surely been a home from home for them. Whilst they have been pleased to see me when collected, they were obviously very happy being with Yvonne and Barry.”

“I have just picked up my Golden retriever who has been holidaying with Yvonne and Barry.He has obviously had a wonderful time, not home from home probably better.!!!! He arrived there with some nasty skin injuries these have been lovingly cared for, as has he. He is already booked in for 2018”

“Our Husky-Lab cross Nelson had a fantastic 10 day holiday with Yvonne & Barry recently - we can't praise them highly enough! They are very well organised, but there is also a lovely calm atmosphere and he was very healthy and happy when we collected him. Nelson means the world to us and to be so relaxed about leaving him while we were away was wonderful. We would recommend Holidays for Dogs without any hesitation :-)”

“Bitsey, our 13 year old retriever and Amber, our one year old working cocker had their first ever holiday from home last week staying with Barry and Yvonne. They were amazing, so warm, friendly and loving and clearly my two furry friends had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend them to anyone and will definitely be happy for Bitsey and Amber to have a holiday there again. Thank you for looking after them so well.”

“Our two dogs Polly and Penny have stayed with Yvonne and Barry several times. They seem to have thoroughly enjoyed each stay and have been well looked after. We also plan to take advantage of their service whenever we have to go away without our dogs. The dogs obviously enjoy their stay and Yvonne and Barry, when we collect them although they are delighted to see us, they still quickly go back to Yvonne and Barry for a cuddle and a stroke.”

“Another Springer called Tilly (not the same one as the review from Bas Godden!). The first time we left "our" Tilly with Yvonne and Barry for a late one week summer holiday at the end of September 2016. We have no reason to doubt that she was well looked after and certainly seemed to enjoy herself whilst in the care of Yvonne and Barry who have the welfare of the animals as their utmost priority. We will be using the service again and for now it's a big thank you and a 5* recommendation for others seeking good boarding for their dog! ”

“Yvonne & Barry gave Bracken a wonderful, warm, friendly holiday in their family home. Walks are taken in the surrounding countryside with photos etc on the Facebook page showing owners just how much the dogs are enjoying themselves. They love dogs and give owners peace of mind when they go away. It is a fantastic home from home environment with lots of attention and home comforts. ”

“We love Yvonne and Barry's care, warmth and love of dogs. Our dogs arrive with enthusiasm - the younger retriever runs wild with excitement at being there and the old retriever is quietly content ( a big deal for a home boy!).When we pick them up, they are happy, bouncy and confident - a delight to see. Yvonne and Barry have coped with a special diet and medicine routines without turning a hair, they interest themselves in our dogs as if they were their own and their years of dog ownership make them very safe hands. We also enjoy seeing them when we drop off and pick up! ”

“Archie has stayed with Yvonne & Barry over the last 5 years and I wouldn't feel happy sending him anywhere else - he loves going there & I know he has lovely walks with them and it really is home from home for him, simply the best and only place for him to be when we are away!”

“My German Pointer - Sam - has been going to Barry and Yvonne for several years now and loves it. I can't praise them highly enough. They ENJOY looking after dogs, and that's something dogs can tell straight away.”

“Our young mini labradoodle Maisie had her first "holiday" away from us with Yvonne & Barry. Having seen their set-up, with secure play areas and a reassuring home environment, we were happy to leave her with them. After nearly two weeks of un-remitting doggie fun (for her, not them!) she really didn't want to come home - we did wonder about asking whether we could move in with them too. ”

“I love staying with Yvonne and Barry, it's almost better than being at home! It's great having somewhere so friendly to stay when my human has to go away - they really look after me and take me out for lovely long walks. Plus I get to meet some new doggy friends. Can't wait for my next visit!”

“Our Welsh Springer Oscar really loves his holidays with Yvonne and Barry. He gets good fun, lots of fresh air and walks and also to mix with other lovely dogs. We get the total peace of mind that Oscar is in capable but loving hands. We can enjoy our holiday knowing we will come home to a well looked after dog. Would strongly recommend Holiday For Dogs.”

“Our Springer - Tilly has had several stays with Yvonne and Barry and has always had a wonderful time with lots of walks, and playing with the other dogs just right amount of care in a warm and friendly environment. Peace of mind assured so you can also have a wonderful time.”

“Our black Labrador has recently stayed with Yvonne and Barry for a week. From the initial phone call and up to collecting roxy I received a warm and friendly reception. Their house is perfectly suited to looking after dogs of all types. The attention to detail when it comes to making your dog feel at home is outstanding. On a personal note I felt so happy knowing roxy was going to have a fun loving week which was confirmed by photos sent to my phone. Thank you Yvonne and Barry. ”
